  • Patent number: 11853552
    Abstract: The hybrid memory device may include volatile and non-volatile memory cells on a single substrate, or die. The non-volatile memory cells may have ferroelectric capacitors and the volatile memory cells may have paraelectric or linear dielectric capacitors for their respective logic storage components. In some examples, the volatile memory cells may be used as a cache for the non-volatile memory cells. Or the non-volatile memory cells may be used as a back-up for the volatile memory cells. By placing both types of cells on a single die, rather than separate dies, various performance metrics may be improved, including those related to power consumption and operation speed.

  • Patent number: 11397750
    Abstract: A centralized datastore maintained by a service provider may maintain current versions of objects (e.g., applications, documents, websites, etc.). A local datastore residing on user devices of users may maintain local versions of the objects. A user may submit a modification to the object and, upon determining that a version of the local object is the same as the version of current version of the object, a current version of the object may be updated to include the modification. If the version and the current version are different, individual fields of the object may be analyzed to determine if the modification involves a change to data that conflicts with data within the same field in the current version of the object. If not, the objects may be merged and the current version of the object may be updated to include the modification. Otherwise, the modification will be rejected.
